Snowshoe hike in the Turbach valley


Discover the delights of the picturesque Turbach valley near Gstaad on this advanced snowshoe hike.

After the steep ascent from the Wasserngrat car park (PostBus stop Gstaad, Wasserngratbahn), the challenging snowshoeing route heads to Giferhüttli via Gräbi–Bachegg–Alp Berzgumm. From there, you can enjoy a wonderful view over the snowy mountains and forests from over 1941 metres above sea level, before taking the same route back to the starting point. After a gruelling snowshoe trek, take on sustenance at the ski club hut by the Wasserngrat car park. 

The path is unmarked. This route is suitable for more experienced snowshoe trekkers. It requires modified technique, a secure footing and a head for heights. You must be in good physical condition.
